Dear Friends of George Hawkins Jr.,

Since being recently diagnosed with cancer, our wonderful friend, George, finds himself on an unexpected life-threatening journey and he needs our help. 

To begin the healing process, the Oncologist and Radiologist have scheduled a bone marrow biopsy as well as a brain MRI.  He will soon undergo an extensive series of radiation and chemotherapy treatments.  George has captivated us with his humor, his grace, his talent, his infectious spirit and generous open heart.  It's our turn to shine love and light back at him by easing his monetary concerns so that he can focus solely on his path to wellness.  Please help bring to George some Peace of Mind with your donations and prayers.  No contribution is too little-- every bit counts!

Prior to this diagnosis, George was set to tour Asia for 3 months with Japan’s beloved Eikichi Yazawa, with whom he’s toured since 1987.  Unfortunately, he will have to forgo this tour and the salary that he would have otherwise earned.  George is insured, but as you can imagine, there are expensive medical costs, alternative treatments, dietary needs and basic living expenses that are mounting and becoming unmanageable in the wake of this unexpected diagnosis.  That’s where you—his friends and family—can step in to show your love and support by helping George during this challenging time. 

As you know, George has led quite an extraordinary life wearing many hats as a touring musician for the last 40 + years.  He has contributed creatively on scores of records, films, TV projects and innumerable live concerts globally as a world-class and respected Bassist &Vocalist who has worked with countless brilliant artists and musicians.  His most fulfilling role is as a loving Father to four amazing young adults, Molly, Jenna, Jack & Uriah.

George has always been a healthy, vibrant and active man so he is ready to overcome cancer and get back to doing what he loves— sharing his incredible musical gifts on stage.   

 
Thank you in advance for your kindness and generosity.


Peace and blessings,
 

Family & Friends of GHJr.

Hello loving friends and followers of the Incomparable, BIG Hearted, Gorgeous, Funny, Incredibly Talented, Hero to some, Friend to all George Hawkins Jr!

It’s been quite some time since my last update as it is very difficult to summarize all the twists and turns of this roller coaster ride we’ve been on for the last year while it’s in constant motion.

I will share what that journey has been like tho the most important communication now to all of you is to PLEASE keep George lifted with Prayers & Best thoughts as his wellness relies only on divine & holistic healing, and the power of our positive energy for his total comfort & Peace of mind.

October 10, 2018 was the one year mark from when George’s health took an unexpected turn that dramatically altered the course of his life. After being misdiagnosed twice, the 3rd diagnoses November 2017 resulted in Multiple Myeloma, a rare cancer of the bones.

Our BRAVE warrior has endured more than an average human being could tolerate physically, emotionally and mentally in such short time while consistently pushing forward with grace & comedic flair. There have been some unbelievable high points on this journey as well as some very low points that George was fortunate to have overcome.

Only a Badass like GHJr could recover in a few months from broken bones, (Collar bone, Femur, Humerus, Tumor invading the skull) and walk around with titanium metal holding his joints together, weekly chemo therapy, strong radiation, blood transfusions and BE well enough to play at his special Benefit Show in February 2018 given to him by his forever friends & musical brothers Loggins/Messina who along with amazing musicians, crew & volunteers made the evening magical & memorable.

Hawkins was on FIRE that night, he worked so hard leading up to it and gave those of us lucky ones to witness, a most masterful, soulful, heartfelt performance to last a lifetime.

At this point in time, George’s medical treatment has reached its peak and now relies on divine strength, holistic healing, prayers, positive thoughts and continued support for his comfort & peace of mind.

Sweet George asked that I please relay his gratitude to everyone of you for keeping him lifted in all the ways each one of you has and hopes you will continue to pray for his highest good.

Please Spread the word, say a prayer, light a candle, share the Gofundme link and laugh out loud like George probably made you do once upon a time.

Peace, Love, Light!!

As passengers on this journey of life, it is undeniable we are all connected to one another and play KEY roles in the ebb and flow of each other's lives directly and indirectly.

There is ALWAYS a chance to make a difference in someone's life thru intention & action if we choose to do.

CALLING for IMMEDIATE support as the struggle is REAL in every way physically, mentally, emotionally, spiritually & financially.

The path to healing and wellness is a long and windy marathon that requires so much more than the individual running the race.

Our beloved George is incredibly Brave and putting up a HELL of a good fight against the unpredictable Beast of cancer.
George has an amazing medical team who are passionate & committed to his highest good tho we need to do our part to take this to another level.

I believe in the power of LOVE & MIRACLES!
It is awakened & manifested by energy, prayers, positive thoughts, compassion, courage & stepping out of our own lives for 1 minute and doing something that can shift another's reality in an extraordinary way.

Please keep George lifted, he needs a BOOST to keep kicking butt no matter what!

Pause. Pray. Pay it Forward anyway you can.
Care. Share link. Send Notes, Jokes, Pix as all of this is good for the soul.

Thank You in advance!
Peace & Love to All!
